Campaign Toolbox 201: Targeting

Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

Bark's successes in protecting Mt. Hood forests and rivers are only possible because of our volunteer organizers, educators, and activists. This event is part of Bark's Rad◦i◦cle Training Program which empowers individuals to learn valuable skills in forest ecology, public lands advocacy and community organizing. The Organizing Track of Rad◦i◦cle focuses on the tools of advocacy, activism, and public engagement.

Portlanders old and new are incredibly fortunate to live in a region where environmental advocacy and grassroots activism have both deep cultural roots and a legacy of some of the most important political and legal victories in the country. You don't need to go far at all in this town to find passionate and experienced organizers and activists, and this community is growing!

Campaign Toolbox 201 will delve into some foundational campaign building tools such as power mapping, communications planning, and coalition building.

Bark has spent 16 years honing these tactics, which are all the more effective when there are more people out there taking a stand! This training will outline the tools we use, how they work together, and discuss evolving organizing tactics. The workshop will be led by Courtney Rae, Bark's Community Organizer. Courtney has been working on environmental, political and social campaigns for 10 years.

Suggested Prerequisites: Forest Policy 101, Volunteer Orientation, Campaign Toolbox 101 or previous experience volunteering for Bark. This event is held in our office at 351 NE 18th Ave. Portland, OR 97232 which is ADA accessible and family-friendly. All are welcome!
